The Hunger Games Wiki

"But the majority, who are in the clutches of drink or morphling or illness, look grotesque in their costumes, depicting cows and trees and loaves of bread."
Katniss Everdeen expressing her disgust at District 9's costumes.[src]

The District 9 female was a tribute from District 9 in the 75th Hunger Games. She was also a victor of an unspecified Hunger Games.


The victor participated and won an unknown edition of the Hunger Games. The use of a pitchfork likely contributed to her victory. After her victory she was presumably assigned to become a mentor for future District 9 tributes to prepare them for their own Hunger Games respectively.

Due to her said age being older than that of the District 9 male victor, she most likely was a mentor for him in his own Hunger Games and mentored him to victory. Together, they most likely mentored more District 9 tributes over the years, and presumably mentored the District 9 tributes for the 74th Hunger Games.

75th Hunger Games

Chariot rides

In the Chariot rides, she and her district partner are seen wearing golden outfits with designs that look like grains of wheat in the film, and mentioned to be dressed as bread in the book.

It is unknown if she showed up for training, as she was never mentioned. In the film, she was seen talking to the District 10 male and female in the waiting room for the private sessions.



During the interviews, she wore a sleeveless top and a white necklace and a black skirt over a pair of slacks matching her shirt color. After the tributes were interviewed, she, along with the other tributes, joined hands as a sign of rebellion against the Capitol.

The District 9 female was killed during the initial Cornucopia bloodbath. She was launched into the arena on the pedestal situated between Finnick's and Chaff's.

She was killed by Brutus when she arrived at the Cornucopia on the first day of the games. She placed 17th-23rd.

  • It is unknown, but unlikely, that she was part of the rebel alliance. She was not mentioned when Haymitch listed the 75th Hunger Games tributes that knew something about the rebel escape plan from those Games.
  • She along with the District 5 male are among the most seen unnamed tributes in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
  • Marian Green confirmed several times on her Twitter that her character was killed by Brutus, but this scene was deleted. [1]
  • A contest was held by Marian Green for fans to name her character. The winning name was Sylva Mayleaf and her preferred weapon was a pitchfork.[2]
  • When asked by a fan she confirmed her weapon was a staff via Instagram.
